Thumbs up kernel 64 bits x86_64 without initrd


Sorry for posting it here, but I dont think there is a bluewhite64 distro section.

I've installed Bluewhite64 and tried to compile kernel 2.6.22.6 x86_64 bits
to boot without an initrd.

My motherboard is an Abit FP-IN9 Chipset nforce 650sli.

I've checked the nvidia site, they tell me in their site the sata driver is the nv_sata
included in kernel.

My partition is EXT3

So I have marked an '*' on the following:


EXT2,EXT3,REISERFS
SCSI options
nv_sata
amd_754 (nvidia site says this is for southbridge ide nforce 430, and other models)

I've been told that I need an option marked as '*' too which is called
dev_fs or udev for booting without an initrd. But I can't find this option.

When I try to boot, I get the error VFS Error Kernel Panic, Cannot sync to partition (8,2). That is strange because I use lilo and the partition is set correct on 'root=/dev/sda2', and I wrote on MBR using the command lilo.

Any idea of what may be ?


PS: By the way, I compiled the same kernel 2.6.22.6 arch i386 on slack 12 and it worked wonderfully.

Thanks.

Hi there

Thanks for using Bluewhite64!

For the kernel, there are new packages with the latest stable kernel 2.6.22.9.

Please see: http://data.bluewhite64.com/bluewhit...inux-2.6.22.9/

Download and use 'upgradepkg' to upgrade all kernel-*.tgz packages, check your /etc/lilo.conf to see if everything is OK and run 'lilo'.

Reboot and enjoy!

Thanks everything is running fine now.




I have another question...


I am getting an error compiling centericq.

Im not at home right now but when I get there I will post it here.

Can be the gcc/g++ version of my system ?
Or it may be x64_86 incompatibility of some kind?

Thank you my friend, you've been very kind to me.

Thanks for the tip!

Now, i can run lfs(with pure 64 --disable-multilib).
up to now, i used to use fedora 7 with no choice.

this set works for me(noinitrd)

PS: no more distro for x86_64 platform, because i have dual linux partition and got skill to ring the ring
